Thats because our national story creates deceptively rough terrain. As a people, we arent clansmen or tribesmen. We dont come from the same blood or geography. We dont look alike. We dont all hold the same notion of god or gods. You cant take us to a prayer meeting or a party, either one, and expect all of us to know the manners or the music. Too commonly, we actively dislike each other. In 234 years, weve proven to be a nation neither wholly right nor wholly wrong. Weve done greater good than ill, occasionally in spectacular fashion. But sometimes the split is iffy. We were once the most racist large nation on earth. Now were the least racist large nation on earth which still isnt good enough. Now, our nation is the most varied in its people, the most ambitious in its hope for everyman and everywoman and by far the boldest, socially. We can fight, too, as our enemies periodically misunderstand. But no nation has ever designed more formidable weapons, and once in possession of them, no nation has ever practiced such restraint. Nor has any other ever produced more honest critics of itself, or more fearless introspection from its own people. At our worst, were greedy, callous and arrogant. But at our best, we display courage, grace, humility, humor, tolerance, endurance, generosity, empathy and the raw desire to make it over the next hill and see whats there. Thats what I hope you will recognize in these simple photos. Every countenance here is a map of our entire history in this case, the best of it. In each lined face the hills and valleys of an American lifetime reveal the topography of our peerless and sometimes difficult country. I know these individuals. I photographed them because I admire them. Since he is often with me, my youngest son, Nash, appears in a couple of pictures, too. With any luck, hell be the one looking into a lens 80 years from now, joined by an invisible wire the enduring notion of independence wrapped in the long muscle of memory to the men and women you see on this page. In one photo, the little boy had slammed his thumb in a car door only seconds before, flattening it, as we went to buy tomatoes. But Nash was determined to suffer as stoically as Mr. Lee has, both in peace and war, across 90 years or so. He refused to shed tears. Simply by his presence, Mr. Lee offered my son an unspoken gift, but also an imperative: Stand up and take it, whatever it is and whoever you are. Each of these people offers that gift to all of us. Theyve starved, fought, suffered wounds in battle, tolerated dire mistreatment from fellow citizens, endured privation, raised children, lost children to war, cared for neighbors unasked, raised cows, raised crops and insisted on good cheer. There is little complaint or bitterness in any of them. None would fail to give you food if you were hungry, or defense if you were besieged, or solace if you were sad. You will know others like them, breathing or not but each still a living part of us. So help me offer them each a grand thanks, and a glorious Independence Day to all. Note: This column, which first appeared in 2010, has become an Independence week tradition. Mr. Lee and Mr. Scheneman are deceased.

Beginning July 1, we are Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW). While our name is new, its important for you to know that our mission, our vision and our dedication to the students, businesses and communities we serve remains the same. Simply stated, this is a name change, not a mission change. In the past few years, we have been undergoing an evolution. In order to continue serving our students, we need to be sure that our academic offerings, and the manner in which we deliver them, are designed to meet the demands of today and tomorrow. We now have five schools that help us do that: the School of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences; the School of Business and Technology; the School of Education; the School of Health Professions; and the School of Pure and Applied Sciences. We have impressive facilities to help our students prepare for their careers, including state-of-the-art nursing simulation labs, a dental hygiene clinic and crime scene investigation software and equipment, for starters. Did you know that we are home to world-class arts icons the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall, the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery and the Rush Gallery? Historically, while called a junior college and a community college, we have more closely resembled a liberal arts college and by offering four-year degrees, even more so. In just a decade, the number of colleges nation-wide, like FSW, that offer four-year degrees has doubled. Today, Florida is one of 21 states that gives colleges the ability to offer bachelors degrees. Many people may not recall that we were the first college to have athletics in this area. Starting in the fall 2015, the Buccaneers will return to competition with our softball and baseball teams. We just signed a 10-year lease with Lee County for the City of Palms Park in downtown Fort Myers. Its a terrific facility and a great place for our students and the community at large to come and cheer our teams. We have plans to bring back womens volleyball and mens and womens basketball in the fall of 2016. Athletics are a new addition and part of our desire to offer a complete college experience. We have a 405-bed residential facility on our Fort Myers campus that opened two years ago. When you look back on your college days, youre going to remember the friends youve made both in and out of the classroom. We continue to have strong academic offerings. Now, by having student clubs, intramural sports and now intercollegiate competition, FSW becomes the full college experience. Looking ahead, we will continue to evolve as Florida SouthWestern State College. We are working on offering international studies and experiences and continuing to build key partnerships with area businesses and our sister institutions. We already have many exceptional partnerships that benefit our students and the community, including the University of Florida, Florida Gulf Coast University, Rookery Bay Estuary, Naples Community Hospital, Lee Memorial Hospital and more. This time is truly is an exciting one for everyone. Join us any time at Florida SouthWestern State College, and Go Bucs! Hail to the RedskinsThe U.S. Patent and Trademark Offices contribution to the Washington Redskins debate is pettifogging absurdity in the service of rank politically correct bullying.A panel of the offices Trademark Trial and Appeal Board ruled in favor of plaintiffs claiming that the Redskins name may disparage persons or bring them into contempt, or disrepute, and therefore stripped the team of six trademarks. In theory, the ruling will hurt the teams bottom line by making it impossible for it to stop others from selling its merchandise.Exercising his constitutional power as arbiter of tastefulness in sports, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid rallied almost all of his Democratic colleagues a few months ago to implore the NFL to change the offending name, and hailed the patent ruling as the beginning of the end of the profound historical injustice perpetrated by the football franchise that dare not speak its name. The patent board ruled this way once before. In response to a complaint in the 1990s, the board made its decision, as it noted this time around, after seven years of litigation, involving multiple discovery and pre-trial motions. Then, the ruling was reversed in court after about another 10 years. Certainly, opinions differ about the appropriateness of Redskins as a nickname. But some perspective: There is no time in American history when Native Americans have been held in higher regard. Their nobility is celebrated in our popular culture, and their unjust treatment recounted in our schools. The existence of a professional football franchise with the same name that it has had for 80 years no matter how anachronistic has self-evidently not caused Native Americans to be held in contempt and disrepute.The Washington Post called the patent decision a victory for tolerance. A bureaucratic body seeking to harm a sports team because some people dont like its nickname is a strange exercise in tolerance. The paper went on to note that the tide is running against the Redskins since so many people have spoken out against them, including the president of the United States and half of the United States Senate, which controls the tax breaks enjoyed by the NFL. Get it? It would be too bad if something happened to your nice football league. How tolerant. In a section establishing the standing of the anti-Redskins petitioners, the patent panel made it clear they have no direct interest except that they are offended. Fine. Dont be Redskins fans. Root for the Cowboys or the Giants, the teams NFC East rivals. Never go to FedExField. Dont buy Redskins paraphernalia. If you must support a Washington sports team, make it one with a nickname so thoroughly anodyne that even the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board approves the Major League Soccer team, D.C. United. But in the 21st century, this isnt the American way. If something offends you, it must be crusaded against and crushed underfoot, using whatever instrument of power is available. That the franchise is holding firm against this assault is reason to say a hearty Hail to the Redskins! while we still can. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

She earned a law degree from Rutgers University and although she has never practiced law, she has found her legal training to be invaluable in all of her positions in higher education, particularly as it relates to accreditation criteria, contracts and administrative policies and procedures. Ms. Brock became involved with Hodges University (then known as International College) through her colleague and friend Don Jones, who was a founding trustee. She has been with the school for 19 years, having served for 18 years as executive vice president of academic affairs and almost one year as president. Her father, Harvard Weatherbee, was from Maine, and her mother, Clarice Henson, was from Missouri. They met during WWII at a USO dance in St. Louis. Her father graduated from the University of Denver and eventually ended up working for General Electric in a position that required family moves about every three years. Ms. Brock was born in Ypsilanti, Mich., and also lived in Rockville, Md.; Fort Wayne, Ind.; White Plains and Schenectady, N.Y.; Newtown Square, Pa.; Cherry Hill, N.J.; and Stamford, Conn. Ms. Brock has three sisters, one older and two younger, all born in different states. Her first job was as a mothers helper while in high school. The summer after graduation she worked in the GE factory in Philadelphia testing coils. She then worked at National Data, a credit card checking service. While completing her education, she did substitute teaching and then taught legal secretaries and paralegals at business schools in New Jersey. Upon moving to the Sunshine State, Ms. Brock took a position with Bay Area Legal Academy in Tampa, eventually becoming director of that school. She subsequently became director of studies at Schiller International University in Dunedin, before moving to Fort Myers to begin her position at International College/Hodges University. She married her high school sweetheart, Herbert Brock, in 1968; both Jeanette and Herbert were 19 years old. Both completed their undergraduate and law degrees at Rutgers University. They had two of their three sons while attending school and both also worked. The Brocks now have five grandchildren. With campuses in Naples and Fort Myers, Hodges University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award associate, bachelors and masters degrees. Current academic programs within its Johnson School of Business, the School of Allied Health, the Nichols School of Professional Studies and the Fisher School of Technology include 12 associate degrees, 17 bachelors degrees, seven graduate degrees and two certificate programs. Providing students with programs that prepare them for careers, Hodges provides support in flexible class scheduling, allowing students to attend weekly classes that suit their busy lifestyles. The University also meets the needs of todays students by offering a wide variety of academic delivery methods and student services, both on campus and in the online learning arena. a s i w g P bobHARDEN bobharden@hotmail.com Talking points with Jeanette BrockSomething your mother was always right about: Whatever job you have, do your very best.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 3-9, 2014 The Department of Homeland Security will not say how many of the 52,000 Central American children who crossed the border unaccompanied have made their way to Florida. Neither will the Office of Refugee Resettlement, responsible for ushering the children to the care of a relative or guardian while their immigration cases play out. A 2012 report from the Pew Research Center, however, shows more than half of all Central American immigrants live in three states: California, Texas and Florida. More than 343,300 Central American immigrants, naturalized citizens and noncitizens live in Florida. Children crossing the border say they are leaving Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador because they do not want to die, they want to go to school, they want to see their moms. Most likely, many of their moms live in Florida. Many dads, many aunts, many relatives. Meet Oscar, a 14-year-old boy from Honduras, one of the elusive children of exponential numbers who has made his way to Florida. The first time Oscar tried to cross the border, Mexican police caught him, detained him for a month, then sent him back to Honduras. Two weeks later, Oscar tried again. He collapsed at the border. That was six months ago, or so. He does not remember the day. He was 13. Sitting in the West Palm Beach trailer where he now lives with his mother, his Dorito-stained fingers fidgeting with a remote control, Oscar opens up and tells his story. He rode buses for days, he walked for hours, he hid from authorities in the forest as it rained. He spent a week in a hotel room with 13 other people he was the only child as coyotes waited for money to smuggle them across. He was moved to a house on the river. He could not sleep. He saw so many snakes. I would see things moving in the water, but I didnt want to know what it was, Oscar says through a translator. That was the river he would have to cross, the Rio Bravo. Oscar does not know how to swim. He made his way on some sort of raft or canoe; he does not know the word. Thats when Oscar collapsed. He has diabetes. Without insulin, he remembers feeling aches for days, stomachaches, headaches. Border Patrol agents took him into custody. Oscar woke up in a cold room. I woke up and I laughed. After everything, I was still alive. I opened my eyes and smiled because I couldnt believe I went through all that and I woke up. I made it, Oscar says. He describes his life in Honduras as being shaded by death and drugs. His father was a drug dealer. So many members of his family were in so much trouble, he saw them being killed, dying off, one by one, disappearing. The murder rate in Honduras has doubled since 2005, giving the country whats believed to be the highest peacetime murder rate in the world. Oscar wants to erase his past. He wants people to understand why children are leaving his home country, to understand the need of being here. They are running from violence, there are no opportunities, there are so many drugs. Oscars mother paid a coyote $6,000 to smuggle him in. She works in construction, she paints walls. She was what kept him going, the longing to see his mom, know his mom. The last time he saw her, he was 5 or 6. There are stuffed animals in Oscars room that she used to hold to remind her of her son, her only child. Now hes here, but shes not holding him, hes not holding her, they are two strangers living together. Sitting in his room a futbol poster above his bed, a bottle of cologne on his nightstand, next to his glucometer to measure his blood sugar, and a baseball video game, a sport he does not know how to play Oscar says he has lost faith in the world. He says he has had people tell him, If it was up to us, you would have died crossing. His shoulders slumped over, he looks like he feels unloved. In the midst of translating his words, Johanna Cuellar says, Aye, Oscar, her emotions taking over, thinking of what happened to him and what could have happened to him. Leaving his home, Mrs. Cuellar says, In this country too, hes the perfect target for any gang member to grab him and turn him into something else.What officials thinkJill Hanson, a semiretired attorney who volunteers her legal assistance through El Sol Neighborhood Resource Center in Jupiter and sits on the board of the Florida Immigrant Coalition, says, They are coming here, the children are coming to Florida because they have family in Florida, not just moms, but dads, cousins, aunts, uncles. Coyotes are carrying children to the border, they cross, they are caught by Border Patrol, they camp out in makeshift shelters until they are bused or flown to the care of a relative, many of whom reside in Florida. I feel very frustrated, Ms. Hanson says. Nobodys paying attention. School district members say the state was expecting a surge in immigrant students after the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, but the Florida Department of Education does not put this humanitarian crisis on par with that natural disaster. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Orlando, says hes monitoring the situation. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Miami Lakes, says the country must care for the children while they are here, but the country must send them back. The administration of President Barack Obama wants to send a message to Central America: Do not send your children to the borders. This humanitarian crisis remains fluid, politically charged and changing daily. A tangle of government agencies are dealing with the border and the children trying to process the ones who are here and intercept the one who are coming. As of June 30, President Obama will ask Congress for more than $2 billion to control the surge and speed up deportations. Ms. Hanson says, I cant image how the U.S. government could deport a 5-year-old or 12-year-old child. As a caveat, the attorney adds, I know of no law that says they cant be deported. She describes such a law as a myth passed by word of mouth around Central American countries. People are spread-IMMIGRANTSFrom page 1 Oscar watches World Cup highlights in his bedroom, trying to assimilate to his new world.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 3-9, 2014 NEWS A9 SEE IMMIGRANTS, A10 ing the myth and children are coming to reunite with their parents, who left them in the care of their grandparents as they came to the United States in search of a better life for the family. Grandparents are aging, no longer able to care for the children, now adolescents, who perceive the dream of living in America as attainable as they hear the promise of it slip from more and more lips. Its a tragedy, Ms. Hanson says. Its been a tragedy in the making as the years have passed with no action taken to reform immigration law. Ms. Hanson has not seen a single child deported. She foresees them staying here, going to school here, working here. Ten years from now, people will still be talking about all the children who came over 10 years ago, asking, What are we going to do about them? The Department of Homeland Security will not disclose the number of children deported or the cost to deport them. (A quick Orbitz search shows one-way flights from Miami to Honduras for $375. One-way flights from Houston to El Salvador for $325. Flights from Houston to Guatemala cost over $400. Multiply by 52,000 children. Such math is simple projection, but neither Immigration and Customs Enforcement nor Customs and Border Protection are giving out any numbers). Nonprofits and faith-based organizations seem to be the ones stepping up. These groups are focused on education and health care, trying to teach the children English, trying to keep them healthy. A number of nonprofits would not speak on the record, not wanting to lose funding from donors, who oftentimes, when they hear of child immigrants, immediately ask, Are they here illegally? Priests see the migration as a chance for the U.S. to be civilized and care for the children, or be ignorant and hope the children go away. U.S. responsibility has become part of the conversation, as immigrant advocates argue the countrys appetite for drugs fuels the drug cartels, and the rearing and deportation of criminals has amplified gangs. Throw in a non-committal Congress, no immigration reform, and Florida Immigrant Coalition Deputy Director Isabel Vinent says, The United States must look at our role in this. What are we doing wrong? We are doing something wrong. Children are sleeping on the cold, concrete floors of improvised warehouses, traumatized in their home countries, traumatized on their journeys. Some agencies may classify them as unaccompanied aliens, some politicians call them illegal, but Mrs. Vinent stresses, They are children, not criminals. They are refugees. She points out that children are not only escaping to the U.S., they are fleeing to Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Belize. But back here at home, she says, If we value families, we have to prioritize family reunification. With the current immigration laws, families are separated daily. Colin Abbot, managing attorney of the migrant unit at Florida Rural Legal Services, tries to unriddle, from a legal perspective, what life looks like for these kids: Children crossing unaccompanied may receive Special Immigrant Juvenile status if they have been abused, abandoned or neglected. Thereby, secure a green card, earn citizenship, live and work in the U.S., but never petition for a green card for their parents. They can also receive a visa if they can prove they have been victims of crime or human trafficking. Jupiter attorney Ms. Hanson chimes in, Part of the craziness of immigration law, the methods to get legal status are so limited, you have to prove you were abused by family in order to obtain legal status, so what if your family loves and takes care of you? More and more children are showing up at her desk, some with a court date, some with a directive to report to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, some with no papers. Ms. Hanson says there seems to be no consistent policy, just the same question: What to do next? Thinking back on how the U.S. has historically provided safe haven for Cuban, Haitian and Sudanese refugees, reflecting on past amnesty for farmworkers, Mr. Abbot foresees an akin-veined amnesty being given to the children. If enough pressures put on government These children need help the president can always use his administrative discretion, Mr. Abbot begins. We do have remedies. We can create a new status for these kids, some deferred action for them to stay here. There are ways around this and I think that will happen. As ambiguous as their futures might be, Mr. Abbot says their arrival is certain. Based in Fort Myers, his role has him traversing the state from the Panhandle to the Keys. From rural towns (Immokalee, Belle Glade, Arcadia, LaBelle) to inner cities (Tampa, Orlando, Jacksonville), Mr. Abbot says hes hearing the same thing: The children are coming. Theres this sense coming from within these communities that this is going to be an issue, very quickly, he says. We will quickly see a wave of children, within weeks, maybe days.More young onesMeet Belinda, a 4-year-old Guatemalan girl who crossed the border with her pregnant, 16-year-old cousin in November. Belinda stands 3-feet 2-inches tall. She weighs 28 pounds. She remembers walking across the desert. She remembers being thirsty. At 4, she knows the word inmigracion, literally translating to immigration, but used colloquially by immigrants to refer to Border Patrol agents. Belinda now lives with her parents and baby sister in Golden Gate City, a Collier County community often lost in the shadow of migrant magnet Immokalee. Belindas parents paid a coyote $4,000 to bring her here. Her father works in roofing. He makes $80 to $90 a day. They saved and somehow ate. Belindas parents crossed two years ago. They left her with her grandmother. She was not yet 2 years old. I really didnt want to leave her there. I wanted to have her here We did not have enough money, Belindas mother, Bernarda, says through a translator. We had to come, figure it out here, find work, save money. Bernarda could not sleep as her daughter What Florida statesmen are sayingGov. Rick Scott, Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Orlando, and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Miami Lakes, were asked: How do you feel about the children who have crossed the border unaccompanied and made their way to Florida? Is Florida ready to receive them? From your vantage, whats the conversation? What do you want Floridians to know most? What do you want immigrant families to know? What has not been said? Whats going to happen to these kids? Heres how they responded Gov. Rick ScottThe images of these children are truly heart wrenching and magnify the federal governments ineptitude in dealing with our border in a safe and secure manner. Congress should move promptly to find an immediate solution to our defunct immigration system. John Tupps, press secretarySen. Bill NelsonSen. Nelson is aware of the situation at the border. Hes asked the administration for details on its plan of action and has been told they are working to locate families and find temporary housing. Hes also been told the recent influx stems in part from a dramatic increase in gang violence in Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. The senator is continuing to closely monitor the situation. Ryan Brown, press secretarySen. Marco RubioThe ongoing situation involving unaccompanied children crossing our southwest border is a serious humanitarian and national security crisis. Florida and other states receiving them should certainly treat them with care, as the U.S. does with all those who come here seeking refuge, but ultimately these children are here illegally and must return to their country. The Obama Administration must enforce current immigration laws to discourage others from illegally crossing the border and I hope we can send a clear message that what they are doing is illegal and puts these children in great danger. Sen. Marco Rubio ATHENA PONUSHIS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Guatemalan-Maya Center in Lake Worth has expanded English classes to ready the influx of child immigrants for school. Above, Hugo, 15, writes his name. He crossed the border in May with his 18-year-old brother, who is still being held in a detention shelter.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 3-9, 2014 IMMIGRANTSFrom page 9was crossing borders, reliving the eight days she walked across the desert, every possible scenario playing out relentlessly in her head. The coyote was supposed to deliver Belinda on a Friday. Saturday morning came and went. Sunday morning, nothing. She remembers the time and day she got the call from Border Patrol: 5 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 3. She thanked God. She felt relief. She saw her daughter a month later. Bernarda shares her story because she wants people to know its real. A real struggle, she says. Kids want to be with their parents. Their parents are here. In Guatemala, Bernarda says women are treated as minorities and stuck in a poverty cycle: You learn how to write a little, to count a little bit, then youre done. You go off with your husband and have kids. Thats all you do. She came to the U.S. because she wanted her daughters to have an education. The Rev. Frank OLoughlin, a Catholic priest, worries the school system has not stood up to meet the rise of child immigrants. He says providing summer school for the children would have been the obvious thing to do. Executive director of the GuatemalanMaya Center in Lake Worth, the Irishman has a head full of children. Eager to help those new to the land, he asks the children at his side, How do we reach them? Who have you got? Have you heard of anybody? A little girl answers, My brother. He arrived yesterday. Not a day goes by that he doesnt find another child to think about. At this level here, were worried about the America that receives the child and thats just what this center is supposed to do, its supposed to see to it that the America that receives the child is simpatico, says Father OLoughlin, affectionately known as Father Frank. Focusing on education and healthcare, the center has been expanding its English classes and lining up appointments with doctors. Theres the invitation for all of us to step up and be civilized, Father Frank says of the children-crossing-border crisis. Its well within our happy capacity to look after them. And without doing all the politics of why they are coming, or what economies we broke with the trade agreements, without doing all that, without being mean about the fact that their communities are being destroyed supplying our drug needs, without doing any of that wacky stuff, the fact is, theyre ours to look after. Like a shepherd giving a sermon, he goes into the freezing of the Rhine, immigrants from the north walking across the frozen river, the Romans killing 1 million to stop them from coming, their perseverance, the creation of Europe. Whats happening here is so much bigger than any of our imaginations, he says. The romancing we do about America as the land of the immigrant, this revives it all for me. Thinking of the resilience of the children, everything they have done, everything they could do, all the places they could go, all the obstacles they could overcome, Father Frank says. Nothing in my life ever required me to do anything like they have done. What would be the matter with me if I couldnt see whats before me? The heroism of the moment isnt San Antonio beating Miami, the heroism of the moment isnt La Copa, the heroism of the moment, its these children. Florida Weekly did not print the last names of the child immigrants or immigrant families.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 3-9, 2014 NEWS A11 Under Laura and Jim Dixons leadership, Haynes Corporation has acquired numerous businesses and continues to expand its product lines, invest heavily in state-ofthe-art machinery and add patents to the companys portfolio. The Dixons contribute generously in time and funds to the Naples Children and Education Foundation, which organizes and runs the Naples Winter Wine Festival. Both are trustees within the foundation, and Mr. Dixon serves as chairman of the NCEF grant committee. Mrs. Dixon is a past member of the board of directors for Youth Haven, and the couple contribute to organizations including Friends of Foster Children, Naples Botanical Garden, American Red Cross, Wounded Warriors, Conservancy of Southwest Florida, Auction Napa Valley, Hope for Haiti, Collier County Sheriffs Youth Programs and the American Cancer Society. As Laurance Haynes did for Jim and Laura, the Dixons have given their two children the opportunity to grow the family business. Haynes Corporation will remain in the hands of the Dixon family for years to come. As one of the few family businesses in Southwest Florida to span four generations, the Wynn Companies innovative business approach has allowed it to prosper despite competition in each of its business sectors. In 1938, Peter Parley Wynn and his wife, Vida, opened the Bay Dock Hotel, which included a small grocery store. Their son, Don Wynn, founded Sunshine Foodway in 1948 (later known as Wynns Family Market) as well as Sunshine Ace Hardware in 1958, which has since grown to 270 employees and recently received the 2014 Business Ethics Award from the Uncommon Friends Foundation. In addition to Wynns Family Market and Sunshine Ace Hardware, the Wynn Companies includes Wynn Properties (founded in 1982), a full-service commercial real estate, development and property leasing and management company; and Wynns Catering (founded in 1992). Upon Don Wynns retirement in 1985, the companies passed to the second generation Wynn family: Larry Wynn, president, and TJ Wynn, vice president, of Wynn Properties; Tim Wynn, president of Wynns Family Market and Wynns Catering; Jerry Wynn, CEO, and Michael Wynn, board chairman and president, of Sunshine Ace Hardware; and Linda Wynn Smith, corporate secretary and treasurer of Wynn Companies. In 2012, Jeff Wynn took over as president of Wynn Properties. Through the decades, the Wynn family name has become synonymous with business excellence and community service. Michael Wynn was recognized in 2009 as one of Gulfshore Business Forty Under Forty, and in 2010 he received the Volunteer of the Year award from both the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce and the YMCA. He is the immediate pastchairman of the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce, founding co-chair of the Partnership for Colliers Future Economy and past trustee of the YMCA of the Palms from 2008-11. He is also a 2014 recipient of the National Retail Hardware Associations Top Gun award and a proud member of Vistage, a 2008 graduate of Leadership Collier and a 2012 graduate of Leadership Florida. Larry Wynn has served the Gulfshore Rotary Club as president from 1981-82 and the YMCA as a board member from 198082 and president in 1982. In 1985, he helped found Naples First National Bank, where he served as a director until 2000. TJ Wynn, in addition to his involvement with the Golden Gate Business Association, having served as president from 198485, has been active with Barron Collier High School and was named Band Parent of the Year for 1996-97. Jerry Wynn is a past-president of the Naples Rotary Club and has received the Four Avenues of Service Citation Award (2000), the Four Way Test Award (2005), Rotarian of the Year (2002) and is a multiple year Paul Harris Fellow. Tim Wynn is involved in a wide range of community and professional organizations, including serving on the board of directors for Associated Grocers and past board member of the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce. In 2002, he was named a Man of Distinction by Gulfshore Life Magazine. Since 2005, Linda Anne (Wynn) Smith has served the First Baptist Academy of Naples as a school board member and remains a volunteer in the First Baptist Church pre-school department. The Dixons and the Wynn family will join a distinguished group of individuals who have been inducted into the Business Hall of Fame since it was founded in 1987.

A GOOD NIGH T S S Holocaust museum welcomes childrens book authorThe Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida presents Margaret Cardillo, the author of Just Being Audrey, on Monday evening, July 7, as part of its summer exhibit focusing on Hollywoods Whos Who in World War II. The exhibit highlights the often little known World War II contributions and experiences of many popular personalities. Audrey Hepburn is one of the iconic figures featured. Just Being Audrey is a popular childrens book about the famous actress and humanitarian. Ms. Cardillo will discuss information discovered during her research about the young Ms. Hepburns wartime experiences and their impact on her later life. Before the start of the war, Ms. Hepburn and her mother were living in England. When Great Britain declared war on Germany, her mother decided it would be safer for them in her native country, Holland, and they moved to live near her family. When Germany invaded Holland, Ms. Hepburn and her family were then trapped in a Nazi-occupied country until the end of the war. Ms. Cardillos presentation begins at 6:30 p.m. Afterward, she will welcome questions from the audience and will also autograph copies of her book, which will be available for purchase. Proceeds from book sales will benefit education programs at the museum. Attendance is free and open to the public. Reservations are required, however, as seating is limited. RSVP by calling the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida at 263-9200 or emailing Danielle@holocaustmuseumswfl.org. Cardillo

Dr. Stacey D. Vlachos is guided by a dedication to his eld and a commitment to extensive training. A graduate of Michigan State University and University of Michigan Dental School, Dr. Vlachos had the pleasure of studying and practicing with Dr. Carl Misch, the worlds foremost implantologist. As a result of that great experience, and his own hard work, Dr. Vlachos is himself among the leading implantologists in the country. Not only is he board certi ed by the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant dentistry, he has more than 25 years of experience in implant placement. He is also an educator, lecturer and author on staff at two major universities. With all of this combined, you can know that Dr. Vlachos will give you the essential, and incomparable, care you need and deserve. Dr. Stacey D. VlachosLEADING IMPLANT SPECIALISTIS IMPLANT DENTISTRY FOR YOU? IS IT PRACTICAL? LONG LASTING? Before you consider the best in restorative dentistry, and before consulting with our staff, let us answer a few of your questions: 1. Implant dentistry is preventive, as well as restorative. It is both esthetic and practical. It can improve your bite, your looks and your self-esteem. 2. Dental implants are long lasting, providing that patients follow routine schedules of dental hygiene and check-ups. 3. Each patient is comfortably sedated and relaxed for the implant procedure. Once completed, discomfort is minimal and easily managed with proper medication and follow-up care. 4. One of the inherent bene ts is that throughout treatment, patients are never without their teeth. DOCTOR G. GORDONDOCTOR C. ASHTONDOCTOR S. VLACHOSDouble check before you donateMystery man placing fraudulent Humane Society collection boxesSomeone posing as a volunteer for Humane Society Naples is approaching local business owners asking to place a candy donation box in their retail location as a way to raise funds for lost pets. Over the course of a few days recently, HSN received several calls from businesses that a mystery man dropped off the collection boxes and left without giving any contact information. We think theyre playing off peoples emotions for lost pets. Its devastating when someone loses a pet. People feel for them so they want to donate to help find it, says Michael Simonik, HSN executive director. HSN has more than 100 legitimate collection boxes at retail establishments that generate $15,000 a year in support of the no-kill pet shelter and adoption center. However, the legitimate donation boxes contain the agencys logo and name and also have a staff members business card attached if there is any question about its authenticity of support of orphaned pets in need. Eric Brix, owner of Four Footed Friends in Naples, says a mystery man stopped by his business Monday, June 23. He advised me he was working for the humane society, Mr. Brix says. It didnt seem like something they would do, and the fact that I already have a donation box from Humane Society Naples made it seem suspicious. On the collection boxes in question, there is fine print to let the donor know that it is not for a specific charity. Any profits go the boxs owner. The fraudulent boxes offer candy for sale in exchange for a suggested donation. Its very frustrating because we feel for the people who think theyre donating to a certain cause and thats not where the moneys going, Mr. Simonik says. Its just going in someones pocket. A check of the website listed on the fraudulent boxes showed none of the pets on the main page were from Southwest Florida and some had been found safe weeks ago. To make a donation in confidence to Humane Society Naples, call Andy Reed, director of development, at 6431555, ext. 21, or visit www.hsnaples. org. Shy Wolf seeks foster caretakers for abused, rescued wolf dogsCubby is a wolf dog who loves people, in spite of being rescued from starvation and severe cuts in her neck from a chain and choke collar. Dingo is a wolf dog whose owner is dying of cancer. These are just two examples of several animals that Shy Wolf Sanctuary Education & Experience Center has recently rescued or been asked to re-home. These daily requests highlight an increasing need for foster families to care for abused, abandoned and neglected animals in Southwest Florida. Our need for foster caretakers is more critical now than ever, says Deanna Deppen, vice president of Shy Wolf Sanctuary. Our most recent rescues put us at our maximum capacity, and we are looking for foster families or adopters. We wont be able to help any more animals until we find other housing options for them. To ensure that potential foster families can manage the wolf dogs unique needs, Shy Wolf volunteers arrange a home visit, check references, assess the homes fencing or containment and help train the caretakers. Animals that are available for foster care are carefully screened by temperament and needs and are matched with appropriate families. It takes a special type of individual to care for wolf dogs, Ms. Deppen says. But for those who are dedicated to doing so, they will discover a strong, loving bond that leads to the most rewarding experience. Shy Wolf is home to more than 50 animals including wolves, wolf dogs, Florida panthers, foxes, prairie dogs and tortoises. Fundraising is underway for a new facility where the sanctuary can reopen to the public and continue to care for and feed the animals.

Troop leader wins Girl Scouts awardDeputy Laura Woolf of the Collier County Sheriffs Office has received the national Volunteer of Excellence award for Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida. She is a Girl Scout troop leader and also serves as a regional volunteer manager to 50 troops and more than 500 girls. Ms. Woolf says she volunteers with Girl Scouts because she strives for her children to have more opportunities than she ever had. I volunteer my time and knowledge to girls who I hope will take the things I have been able to teach them in their life to leadership. I volunteer because it makes me better, too. The Girl Scout Volunteer of Excellence Award recognizes those volunteers who have contributed outstanding service while partnering directly with girls. The recipient performance has been beyond the expectations of the position and the recipient actively recognizes, understands and practices the values of inclusive behavior. Girl Scouts is a volunteer-led organization and is in the need of new volunteers for the upcoming school year. The Gulfcoast Florida council serves more than 7,500 girls in Collier, Hendry, Lee, Manatee, Hardee, Highlands, Sarasota, DeSoto, Charlotte and Glades counties. For more information, call Yvonne Bras at 232-4475 or visit www.gsgcf.org/volunteers. Make-A-Wish honors retired educator as Volunteer of the YearNaples resident Fred Talbott has been named Volunteer of the Year for MakeA-Wish Southern Florida. Mr. Talbott began his volunteer journey with Make-A-Wish 18 months ago. Local staff and event chairs say he is always willing to respond to any and every volunteer request, from playing a major role on the Walk For Wishes committee to obtaining more school participation with the event itself. He has also conducted many community presentations sharing the mission of Make-A-Wish. A native Virginian, Talbott moved to Naples in 2009 from Nashville, where he taught in the MBA program at Vanderbilt University. He is an award-winning educator and journalist, professional speaker, trainer and author. I like helping in any way I can, he says. I try to be available when needed and am happy to do the busy work that is so vital to the organization things that others may not have time to do. This volunteer position has allowed me to help children and their families and to meet really good people throughout the area. Plus, I really enjoy working with the wonderful Make-A-Wish staff and volunteers. He says he was drawn to Make-AWish because when he was 4 years old, long before Make-AWish began, he was a child who could have been eligible for a wish. He suffered a terrible fall and was hospitalized for several weeks and in great danger, requiring round-the-clock injections and full-time medical care. He had to learn to walk and run again, which took several years, always realizing his physical limitations could return at any time. I recall how, for so many years, I felt as if I was being left behind by the world and my generation due to my illness and its resulting impact, he recalls. I also now know my family never let me or my siblings know the great financial challenges my illness brought; they simply shared courage, joy and hope with us always. When I realized Make-A-Wish touches families and children in such a positive way, I knew I would always be honored to volunteer and help in any way possible. Mr. Talbott adds that he celebrates the Volunteer of the Year award not for himself but because it symbolizes the good all volunteers do and says that this is the greatest honor of all. Celebrating 30 years of wishes this year, Make-A-Wish Southern Florida grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. The Southern Florida chapter grants a wish every 16 hours and has granted more than 9,000 wishes since its inception in 1983. The chapters vision is to make every eligible childs wish come true.

Man of the people?Scott Fistler, twice a loser for electoral office in Phoenix, Ariz., as a Republican, decided in November 2013 that his luck might improve as a Democrat with a name change, and legally became Cesar Chavez, expecting to poll better in a heavily Hispanic, Democratic congressional district. (Cesar Chavez is, of course, the name of the legendary labor organizer.) Furthermore, according to a June report in the Arizona Capitol Times, Mr. Chavezs campaign website features photographs of frenzied supporters holding Mr. Chavez signs, but which are obviously scenes from the streets of Venezuela at rallies for its late president Hugo Chavez. (At press time for News of the Weird, a judge had removed Mr. Chavez from the ballot, but only because some qualifying signatures were invalid. Mr. Chavez promised to appeal.)Compelling explanations U.S. District Judge Richard Kopf of Omaha, Neb., trying to be helpful, he said, advised female lawyers appearing in his courtroom to lower their hemlines and cover their cleavage because males, including Judge Kopf himself, are pigs. Writing in his personal blog in March, he said, I have been a dirty old man ever since I was a very young man and that the women in his office are similarly contemptuous of daringly dressed female lawyers. The lifetime-tenured judge later said he regretted any harm to the judiciary that his remarks might have caused. Almond Upton, 60, charged with murder for intentionally striking a New York state trooper in May with his pickup truck, denied everything. He told reporters following his first court appearance that he is bewildered by the accusation: I was (close to) the Connecticut border, and all of a sudden, Im in Binghamton, N.Y. (about 140 miles from Connecticut), and this cop got killed, I dont know how it happened. It had to be a time warp. The National Security Agency admitted in a June court filing that it had disobeyed two judicial orders to stop deleting accusatory evidence in its databases (which judges had ordered preserved to help determine if the NSA was illegally violating privacy laws). The NSAs reasoning for its chutzpah: Its data-gathering systems, it claims, are too complex to prevent the automatic deletions routinely programmed into its data, and it cannot reprogram to preserve the data without shutting down its entire intelligence-gathering mission. The challenging party (the Electronic Frontier Foundation) called the NSAs explanation disingenuous and, in fact, further proof that the NSA is incapable of properly managing such massive data-gathering. Michael Adrian, 26, was arrested in Lakeville, Minn., in June for frightening officials at Lakeville North High School by skateboarding in front of the school, in military dress, face covered by a bandana, with an arrow strapped to his arm, and concealing knives, a box-cutte r, a slingshot and pepper spray. Mr. Adrian told police he was merely testing the schools security system by looking like an a**hole. (A judge ordered a mental evaluation.)Karma At an April press conference on a train station platform in Milford, Conn., to critique the allegedly shoddy safety record of the Metro-North rail line, U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut set up a chart on an easel to illustrate the problem. Suddenly, a train roared through the station and, according to news reports, nearly clipped Sen. Blumenthal, who was standing on the yellow platform line that passengers are admonished to stand behind. In June, a jury in Fresno, Calif., decided that Bobby Lee Pearson, 37, was guilty of burglary but they accidentally signed the not-guilty form, instead, and by the time Judge W. Kent Hamlin caught the error, he could not change it (because of double jeopardy). Mr. Pearson walked out a free man, went to his sisters home, got into a fight hours later, and was stabbed to death by the sisters boyfriend.Sounds like a jokeThe animosity between Brevard County (Florida) judge John Murphy and public defender Andrew Weinstock festered over the lawyers refusal to waive his clients right to a speedy trial, but came to a head on June 2, when the judge told Mr. Weinstock, Stop pissing me off. Just sit down. Mr. Weinstock persisted: I have a right to stand and represent my client. The judge responded: If you want to fight, lets go out back, and Ill just beat your a**. And to a back hallway they went, with the lawyer allegedly just intending to talk out their differences. However, according to Mr. Weinstocks supervisor, Judge Murphy immediately grabbed Mr. Weinstock and began punching him. Mr. Weinstock was not seriously hurt, but vowed to report the incident to the Florida Bar. Robert Wallace, 32, a Houston software developer, filed a lawsuit in May to get back some items after a failed romance. According to Mr. Wallace, he had loaned a laptop computer, $2,000 cash and his Harry Potter DVDs to his sweetheart, Ms. Nomi Mims, a local stripper. Mr. Wallace said the loans were made only because he thought she was in love with him and that they were building a future together, but now realizes he was wrong. Ms. Mims calls the items gifts and noted, Ive given him gifts, too. You know, how do I get my booty back?American conundrums Authorities somehow could not prevent an inmate serving life at a North Carolina prison from arranging, via a contraband cellphone, to have the 63-year-old father of his prosecutor kidnapped and tortured. The U.S. State Department somehow cannot arrange safe haven for Afghan interpreters who risked their lives daily serving U.S. combat troops and who face almost certain retaliation by militants once Americans have departed. Even the coordinator of the interpreter program, who applied for a U.S. visa in 2012, has not been approved (according to a March 2014 New York Times dispatch).

The School of Allied Health at Hodges University will add a graduate certificate in health informatics to its offerings of healthcare-related disciplines this fall. Health informatics is the applied research and practice of managing, analyzing, interpreting and transforming data to help clinicians, administrators and consumers improve quality of and access to care and to reduce costs. Healthcare today requires administrators and managers who can talk the talk with IT folks as well as surgeons, says Dr. Carlene Harrison, dean of the School of Allied Health at Hodges U. Health informatics looks not just at the information produced in a database, but makes it meaningful for a variety of users for a variety of purposes, she adds. The new Hodges program has been designed for those with an undergraduate or graduate degree in a clinical area who seek knowledge of health informatics principles, methods and applications. Students enrolled in the program will complete a total of five courses that will lead to the certificate. For more information, call (844) 4634378 or visit www.hodges.edu.

Heres a recap of what we discussed at a recent FHA board meeting. We started with a report from the associations quality committee on the two issues that put hospitals out of business: quality and finances. We reviewed both good and bad stories about quality, including an incident in which a patient with MERS was quickly and correctly identified, and another hospitals successful recovery from a two-day, unplanned computer system shutdown. We moved next to ongoing improvements in quality and safety. The heartening news was that 54 percent of the 145 hospitals participating in Floridas Hospital Engagement Network achieved the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services goal of 40 percent reduction in patient harm (infections and complications) and a 20 percent reduction in 30-day readmissions. This is good news, but we still have fewer than than 50 percent of all hospitals in Florida enrolled in HEN. Accordingly, our next topic was how to encourage non-participating hospitals to participate in these important associations. The harsh reality is that when viewed by outside payers such as Medicare and Medicaid, all hospitals in Florida are viewed together. Also, in this age of transparency with the Internet, patients have access to the information, so we are all better off cooperating in working to improve. The FHA staff was charged with informing every hospital CEO and quality manager including those at the states 100 non-FHA member hospitals about their respective quality parameters compared to the state average and their peers. Self-awareness is an early step toward improvement. Engaging the leadership teams and boards of healthcare systems to move forward and focus their attention on quality was a major motion of the FHA board. Moving Florida from the bottom quartile upward in the next five years is a challenge, but one that we can accomplish. Other states are improving at rates faster than Florida, which makes the challenge even more critical. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. HEALTHY LIVING allenWEISSallen.weiss@nchmd.org Blood drives also offer chance to join bone marrow registry SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYBonnie and Kevin Bee know about needing a bone-marrow donor. Their 10-year-old son, Timmy, was recently diagnosed with aplastic anemia, which, simply described, is bone marrow failure. Timmys only hope is a life-saving bone marrow transplant. Bonnie Bee is a Collier County Sheriffs Office corporal assigned to the agencys Youth Relations Bureau. Kevin Bee is a firefighter/ EMT with North Naples Fire Control and Rescue District. They are no longer together as a couple, but they are both doing everything they can to help their son and raise awareness to the need for bone-marrow donors. You just dont realize how important all this is until its yours, Ms. Bee says. Mr. Bee echoes those sentiments. This has been an eye-opener for me. It has made me see the tremendous need out there, he says. Its heartbreaking to see these children and adults at the hospital and the only treatment that can help them is a bone-marrow transplant. Each year, more than 20,000 people in the United States from birth to age 74 are diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses in which a bone marrow transplant from a matched donor is their best treatment option, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. A bone-marrow transplant replaces a patients diseased blood-forming cells with healthy cells. While a related matched donor a sibling has been found for Timmys upcoming transplant, other children and adults in need arent as fortunate. Ms. Bee says she had no idea how great the need is for bone-marrow donors until Timmy was diagnosed and they were spending all of their time at the hospital. You walk in there and you see all these kids who have the ports and theyre constantly being medicated and they have no hair, she said. Its heart wrenching. All I could think of was, How could I help them? The community will get an opportunity to help kids and adults who need a bone-marrow transplant or blood at two upcoming Community Blood Center bloodmobile donor drives: Tuesday, July 8: 8:3011 a.m. at C ollier County Growth Management at Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union, 2728 N. Horseshoe Drive. To sign up, call Mike Bosi at 252-6819 or email michaelbosi@ colliergov.net. Thursday, July 10: 8:30 a.m. t o noon at the Collier County Government Center, U.S. 41 East and Airport-Pulling Road. The bloodmobile will be parked near the Collier County Courthouse and the parking garage. To sign up, call 734-0737. At either blood drive, the public can donate blood, join the Be The Match bone-marrow registry or both. Blood donors can walk in but are encouraged to sign up. Appointments are not needed to join the bone-marrow registry. Joining the registry is easy and quick, involving a simple cheek swab. Those who join the registry become part of every patients search for a bone marrow donor. Thousands of patients with blood cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma, sickle cell and other lifethreatening diseases need a bone-marrow transplant. Finding a donor is their only hope. Bone-marrow registration is focused on individuals between the ages of 18 and 44, because research shows that younger donors lead to more successful transplants. There are very few medical restrictions. For more information about the bonemarrow registry or to order a registry swab kit to be mailed to you, go to www. bethematch.org. Timmy Bee

The problem was, my lap was already occupied by Twyla, our black-and-tan cavalier. Harper knew that Twyla would give her what for if she dared to jump up there, too. Harper paced back and forth, watching us. You could practically see the wheels spinning in her head. Suddenly, Harper sprinted for the stairs, barking loudly. Twyla immediately jumped out of my lap and ran down the stairs to lead the charge against whatever danger threatened us. Harper, still at the top of the stairs, stopped barking, trotted back to my chair and hopped in my lap. Problem solved. I never cease to be entertained and impressed by dogs thought processes. In her book Inside of a Dog, Alexandra Horwitz writes that dogs are quite capable of concealing behavior, acting to deflect attention from their true motives. In other words, they practice deception. In a 2009 address to the American Psychological Association, canine researcher Stanley Coren, author of The Intelligence of Dogs, said, During play, dogs are capable of deliberately trying to deceive other dogs and people in order to get rewards. My husband has experienced this in nosework class with Gemma, our Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix. Inside her tiny head is a brain worthy of Machiavelli or at least Machiavellis dog. Gemma knows that she is rewarded with treats when she finds a particular odor, and at first she wasnt above giving a false alert in the hope that she might get rewarded anyway. She has learned, though, that it doesnt work, and last time she rocked all her searches, including sweeping by the boxes containing tasty distractors such as pasta, popcorn and Cheetos. Anna McDole, a veterinarian in San Jose, Calif., says her dog pretends to walk away from the cat food. When McDole thinks its safe to drop her guard, he sneaks behind her to get back to it. Glenye Oakford of Lexington, Ky., says her beagle, Eider, knows how to lie when the pressures on. He will sometimes find a forbidden object, like one of our baseball caps, and grab it. In his excitement, hell fly around at top speed carrying the item in his mouth. When we spot him and yell Eider! he runs behind a piece of furniture and emerges on the other side with nothing in his mouth and keeps on running, as if to say, You must have been mistaken because Im just running around here having fun. Dogs dont always trick other dogs (or people) with the intent of getting something out of it. Sometimes they do it just for fun. Kim Schive of Carlisle, Mass., still laughs when she remembers this story about two of her Shetland sheepdogs. Kia lived to keep the yard free of squirrels. Whenever she saw one, she ran at the fence, jumped at it, hitting it with all four feet, did a quick half-turn in the air and another quick half-turn on landing. Then she stamped her feet five times, all the while barking furiously with hackles raised. Penny could mimic Kias routine perfectly, right down to the number of foot stamps and barks. During the dead of winter, while all the squirrels were hibernating, Penny would periodically launch into Kias squirrel dance. I think she did it just to get a rise out of Kia, because when she saw it, Kia would dash around the yard madly for 15 or 20 minutes, looking for the nonexistent rodent while Penny watched her with clear amusement, Ms. Schive says. Many types of dogs have been known to employ distractions and deception to get what they want. PET TALESDog tricksDogs may deceive other dogs (and people) to gain benefits for themselves or just for fun Pets of the Week>> Ami is an active and sociable, 9-month-old black mouth cur mix.

THE DIVA DIARIESThe Divas dilemma: Snapping a fabulous selfieThere are plenty of things that I can do well: I can drive a stick shift. I can walk into Ross Dress for Less and immediately locate the perfect black top to add to my extensive collection of black tops. And I can make the perfect margarita (a double shot of Silver Patron, fresh lime juice, a splash of orange juice poured over ice in a tall salt-rimmed glass plus, a Grand Marnier floater trust me). But, theres something that seems to be an incredibly relevant skill these days and, for the life of me, I cant master it: I take terrible selfies. This is bothersome because selfies are important, apparently. We dont just use them for our Facebook profile pictures, we text them, we Instagram them, we use them for our LinkedIn pages (some people take very professional looking selfies). And we all know that Ellen DeGeneres practically broke the interwebs when she tweeted her famous Oscar selfie with Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and company earlier this year. At first, I thought maybe it was my age, that perhaps only people younger than 25 are savvy enough to take the perfect selfie. But a quick check of my fathers Facebook page shows plenty of selfies that he and my stepmom have taken during their travels since retirement. They manage to get mountains and waterfalls and various landmarks in the background. I did not inherit the talent. I recently got a Facebook friend request from an acquaintance. I recognized the name, but I had to look at the photo several times. It was shot into a mirror, she used the flash on her iPhone, the background was soft and illuminated nicely, it was flattering, yet still classy and age-appropriate. And when I say age-appropriate, I mean this lady is almost 70. I then decided to blame my arms. Theyre not freakishly short, but theyre in proportion to my height, which is 5 feet, 2 inches, so I figured my arms needed to be longer. And yet, its not the case. I have a teeny-tiny girlfriend who is so dexterous with her smart phone that she can actually take a full-body selfie. Its very impressive. I know how to pose for a photo. I point the camera at other people all the time, so Ive definitely picked up some tips: Put one hand on your hip. (It thins out your arm and whittles your waist.) Stick your chin way out, even if it feels weird. (It emphasizes your jaw line.) Avoid getting in the middle of two other people. (Standing straight forward with your arms behind two other folks just spreads out your torso.) But, when it comes to selfies, alas, I have no tips to offer. So while I normally would never encourage anyone to turn to Kim Kardashian for advice on anything, ever, last year she kontributed her selfie tips to Cosmopolitan magazine, and they seem to make sense. Kims No. 1 rule is to hold the phone higher rather than lower; also, know your angle (I think this takes practice, and Kim has more time than I do); make sure the lighting is good; and finally, make a duck face because it gives you cheekbones. OK, that last one, indeed, must be an age thing. Although someday I might actually master the art of the selfie, I will always say no to duck face. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week g l i r n p stephanieDAVIS sdavis@floridaweekly.com

Understanding the lingo of financeFinance and investing are sufficiently complex but made even more so by the abbreviations and acronyms woven into the fabric of financial columns and cable discussions. Often the reader/viewer is struggling to connect the conceptual dots when suddenly a monkey wrench of an unknown abbreviation or acronym is tossed into the discussion. In fact, these word shortcuts are so complex that readers have written to me asking what some of them mean. Sometimes the word context needs to be provided because no off-the-cuff guessing, no head scratching and no Internet searching provide an answer. Here are a few abbreviation or acronym zingers that you should know if reading financial publications. AUM is the amount of money managers have under management (i.e., assets under management) stated in dollars. These assets were once most commonly all equity, all bonds or a mixture of those two. But the past 20 years of investing have introduced several other asset types that have become common and they have their own abbreviations. VC is Venture Capital that is investment capital provided to startup businesses. PE represents Private Equity, which is illiquid and the price is often set by the company in conjunction with the companys investment banker. RE means real estate. REIT is real estate held in a legal form (such as an investment trust) as this form allows favorable taxation. HF represents hedge funds, funds that can take long and short positions in a variety of asset classes (not just equities) and HY refers to high yield bonds.Recent years have brought into question formerly well-accepted academic theory about markets and asset pricing. The CAPM is the capital asset pricing model (i.e., how assets are priced relative to risk-free and equity market risks); a corollary acronym is EMH, the Efficient Markets Hypothesis, which theorizes that the equity market prices reflect all known information and, therefore, excess returns cannot be realized. There is also the DDM, Dividend Discount Model, that postulates that equity prices are determined by discounting their respective stream of projected, expected dividends. (And we can only wonder how the DDM figures Amazon shares.) After 2008-09, the world of academic theory started to pay more respect to BF, or Behavioral Finance; it was the only theory left standing in a room of equity market losses, as this theory focuses on investor behaviors that form trends and irrational and rational fears of equity investors in a crisis form strong trends, debunking theories of CAPM or EMH or DDM. And the mention of 2008-09 brings us to two of the culprits of the crisis. CMOs, or Collateralized Mortgage Obligations, which were pools of mortgages sold to the public. As the risk of these mortgage pools was misrepresented (what was falsely represented was also misunderstood by the investing public). In crisis, many of these mortgage pools crashed and burned. Tied to the CMOs demise was a problem that was actually supposed to be a solution in time of a credit crisis. Many buyers of CMOs bought CDSs, or Credit Default Swaps, a type of insurance (not your typical brokered insurance contract) that was to pay the beneficiary of the insurance if there was a failure in the underlying credit that was insured (i.e., if a debt issuer failed to pay on its debt, CDS was obliged to swap the failed debt for cash in full). This credit protection for which investors had paid insurance premiums came to a crashing halt in 2008-09 because the insurers that had issued the credit default protection went under or were going bankrupt. Somewhat better known are acronyms that are barometers for evaluating a stock. PE is the price of a stock divided by the earnings of the company. Be careful as PE can be calculated based on historical earnings OR projected estimated earnings. It can be calculated for a stock, for a sector of the market or the market as a whole. For instance, the S&P has recently been trading at a PE of 16 if estimated next year earnings consensus is used. So PE differs if the earnings are most recent or forward-looking. A stock can also be described by its E/P or DY ratio. Whilst the DY, or dividend yield, is the actual cash distribution divided by the price of the stock, the E/P takes reported earnings and divides it by price. Some investors are focused solely on earnings yield, some on dividend yield and some actually peek under the covers and figure out what the whole picture is. Theres a cluster of acronyms that pertain to options. ATM does not relate to dispensing cash from your bank. ATM in the world of investing means an at the money option, i.e. the strike price on the option (put or call) is the price at which the stock is currently trading. But there are myriad option strike prices (priced above or below the current price of the stock). Both call and put options can be ITM (in the money) or OTM (out of the money). Partnership terms well understood are GP (general partner) and LP (limited partner), but recent years have put MLPs, or master limited partnerships (that are publicly traded and have favorable taxation), on the radar screen of most investors. Who would know all these different acronyms and abbreviations? Not the typical individual investor, not even the HNWI. Sorry not telling you go figure HNWI, its your homework. As a suggestion, when writing a blog or contributing to an online forum or having a coffee-shop discussion, its best to not assume that the lingo you use is understood by others.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. More American Economic HistoryLast week we listed some outstanding books on American economic history, and this week we add a few titles focused on more modern times. Each offers insights that can make you a better investor or thinker.(1) American Colossus: The Triumph of Capitalism, 1865-1900 by H.W. Brands (Anchor, $18). This well-written and highly engaging book explores the lives and times of powerful capitalists such as J. Pierpont Morgan, John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie.(2) The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money & Power by Daniel Yergin (Free Press, $22). This is an excellent starting place for understanding the importance of oil in 20th-century world history. Yergin shows how oil and natural gas toppled King Coal from his throne as the power source for the industrial world. This is, of course, an international story, but Americans such as John D. Rockefeller, J. Paul Getty and Dwight Eisenhower played a huge role in it.(3) Lords of Finance: The Bankers Who Broke the World by Liaquat Ahamed (Penguin, $20). Also rather international in scope, this book is about four central bankers from the U.S., France, England and Germany who played key roles in shaping global economic policy after World War I. Ahamed explains the Great Depression by looking over the shoulders of the men in charge of the four principal central banks of the world. 4. The Great Depression: A Diary by Benjamin Roth (Public Affairs, $16). Roth provides an extraordinary perspective on one of the most painful economic events in American history. After our own experiences during the recent Great Recession, this is a particularly relevant book for contemporary readers.5. The Battle of Bretton Woods by Benn Steil (Council of Foreign Relations, $20). In 1944, representatives from 44 nations gathered in New Hampshire to design a global monetary system. American Harry Dexter White and Englishman John Maynard Keynes set out to create the economic foundations for a durable postwar global peace. This award-winning book covers an important, overlooked story. Home, Dumb HomeMy family vacationed in Maine in 1987. With some savings burning a hole in my pocket, I purchased a waterfront duplex there as an investment. Living in Washington, D.C., though, it soon became apparent that we werent going to spend much time in Maine, and rent payments didnt come close to paying the mortgage. The purchase was at the height of the market, and when I decided to sell several years later, the market had gone way down. Despite the loss, though, there were still funds left over. I used them to start investing in stocks, a far superior investing activity! J.P., Washington, D.C.The Fool Responds: Youre illustrating some warnings weve issued over the years that its best not to think of your home as an investment, and that owning rental properties is not as easy as it may appear. There are good reasons to buy properties, but keep in mind that they can lose value over time and be hard to sell. Stocks carry risks, too, but over the long run, theyve outperformed most other investment alternatives, such as real estate, gold and bonds. Drilling for DollarsGlobal energy production is booming, and one of the best ways to profit without being hurt by commodity-price volatility is to invest in the companies servicing and supplying the oil and gas industry.Consider National Oilwell Varco (NYSE: NOV), the world leader in providing major mechanical equipment for land-based and offshore drilling rigs. The company has more than 800 manufacturing, sales and service centers, and about 90 percent of all rigs carry some of its equipment. National Oilwell Varcos first-quarter 2014 results featured its backlog of orders for rig technology equipment hitting an all-time high of $16.4 billion (up 27 percent year-over-year), revenue rising 9 percent and net income jumping 18 percent.The company isnt perfect, as it does face risks such as competition, and its profit margins have been shrinking a bit in recent years. It expects a modest nearterm slowdown, too. Still, National Oilwell Varco can benefit enormously from an anticipated spending spree worth hundreds of billions of dollars in new energy production infrastructure investment. It also plans to standardize its equipment and infrastructure, which will help customers keep costs down without sacrificing timeliness when replacing parts.National Oilwell Varco stock is fairly inexpensive, recently with a priceto-earnings (P/E) ratio near 14 and a dividend yield close to 2.4 percent. (The Motley Fool owns and has recommended shares of the company.) I trace my roots back to a London shopk eeper in 1 833, and my full name reflects a 1907 merger. As of last year, I employed about 92,000 people and produced more than 3 million barrels of oil equivalent daily. I have interests in about 30 refineries, 1,500 storage tanks and 150 distribution facilities, and my market value recently topped $250 billion. Im busy in upstream and downstream activities, including deepwater drilling and fracking. I have a mollusk for a logo and am headquartered in a country known more for tulips than oil and natural gas. Who am I? (Answer: Royal Dutch Shell) Your SRI OptionsQHow do I invest in socially responsible companies? B.K., Canton, OhioAFirst, understand that the term can mean different things. A company may have many women in management and not produce firearms, but it might pollute the environment. Its hard to find completely objection-free organizations. Still, you do have several options for socially responsible investing (SRI). You might, for example, invest in a socially responsible mutual fund. As with most funds, not all SRI funds have above-average records. Still, some do, such as the Neuberger Berman Socially Responsive Fund (NBSRX), the Ariel Appreciation Fund (CAAPX) and the Parnassus Core Equity Fund (PRBLX).Learn more about SRI investing and issues at ussif.org, socialfunds.com, csrwire.com and corpwatch.org. You can also visit the websites of firms that run responsible funds, such as calvert. com, domini.com and paxworld.com.Alternatively, seek out companies whose practices you approve of. You can research various companies social track records at socialfunds.com/csr. Check out these books, too: Socially Responsible Investing for Dummies by Ann Logue (For Dummies, $25) and Investing for Change: Profit From Responsible Investment by Augustin Landier and Vinay B. Nair (Oxford, $28).***QHow can I give small gifts of stock to my grandchildren? T.B., Palm Beach, FloridaAFirst, focus on companies they know and like, such as Apple or Nike. (The Motley Fool owns and has recommended both.) Next, consider opening direct investment plan accounts. Often called Drips or DSPs, they let you bypass brokers when buying stock. Learn more at fool.com/school/drips.htm, drip investor.com and directinvesting.com. There are also some companies specializing in gifts of stock, such as oneshare. com, uniquestockgift.com and giveashare. com. Theyre not cheap, though, charging a purchase fee of $15 to $40 or so.

Forty percent of people 55 and older are still working today, the study says, a level among this group not seen since the 1960s. The older workforce now represents the Baby Boomer generation, which the study found is stretching the definition of retirement from no work to a dynamic mix of work and play. The working retirees include a range of income levels. Even though many are retired executives who could live comfortably without a job, most of Merrill Lynch financial adviser Susan Erbs clients in Naples choose to work in retirement including for-profit and volunteer careers. Half of working retirees surveyed said they took a career intermission that averaged 2 years. After that, the study found that most entered a period of reengagement that lasted on average for nine years and included new types of jobs along with leisure activities. Booming businessIf Social Security, created during the Great Depression, institutionalized retirement for many older workers, Boomers are deinstitutionalizing it, suggested Ms. Erb. They are expected to live longer than past generations, requiring more cash to live on, and also more time to fill. The Boomers are healthier. We know were going to live longer and were going to change things like we always have, Ms. Erb said. Nobody wants to sit at home and retire the way our parents did nor can we afford to. Financial challenges such as an ill spouse or children living at home can be a factor in decisions to keep working past retirement age, Ms. Erb points out. Even for wealthy clients, the sharp declines in stock market values during the recession of 2007 and overall economic uncertainty could have led some to include extra income as part of their financial strategy. Eighty-three percent of retirees surveyed said working helps them stay more youthful. They are also twice as likely to say staying mentally active is their top reason to continue working rather than the money.Not your fathers retirement Phillip Wilson is 66 but neither he nor his wife, Linda, plan to quit working anytime soon. For now, both find themselves blessed with health and a busy real estate practice in Port Charlotte, and enjoy the work. Mr. Wilsons father was a World War II veteran who ran a farm supply store for four decades in Missouri, working six days a week. But after his father retired in his early 60s, Mr. Wilson recalled, it just seemed like he lost purpose, he lost direction, and I dont want to do that. At the same time, Mr. Wilson hopes to make some changes to his schedule in later years. My vision of retirement is to continue to work every day and be productive but at the same time having the liberty that when I want to take off and when I want to go somewhere and do something I would have the money to do it, he said. Will work for happiness At 70, Chris Fenwick became a new employee of the Lee County Sheriffs Office. He was hired to work fulltime, four 10-hour days per week, performing background checks on potential new LCSO hires. After a career in law enforcement in Baltimore and northern Florida, he and his wife, Mary Ann Maguire, moved to Shell Point Retirement Community in Fort Myers. The following year he became a LCSO volunteer, leading to his current position. Looking back at his younger self, Mr. Fenwick recalls being out of shape in his 40s. Now he regularly completes triathlons. He had also planned to retire and live off his Social Security, a pension, and other retirement monies invested in products such as stock, bonds and mutual funds. During the recession, their value took a heck of a hit, Mr. Fenwick said. That was a factor in his decision to keep working, although not the main one. Money was part of the motivation, but just liking the work was probably the major motivation. I guess Im in the position now that I dont have to work. I can live quite comfortably without working, but the camaraderie and happiness with the work is important. And my wife agrees with me.Learning new tricksThe study also found that people often start new types of jobs, including their own businesses, after they retire from previous careers. Working retirees were three times more likely than pre-retirees to be entrepreneurs. Bonita Springs resident Mack Rose, who is 65 and formerly ran a welding business in Ohio, started his own unique taxi service. Macks Karaoke Kab includes a laser light show and full karaoke system, allowing passengers to sing along to their favorite tunes while he drives to their destination. I consider it play. Its not work for me, he said. Its a nice thing to do. And it keeps me more youthful. And yes, money is a big part because I need the extra income to do the things we (he and his wife) need to do. He adds, I just think its a sin for a healthy person to stay at home and do nothing when he can continue being productive. Even if you dont need the money per se youll live a longer life if you have something to look forward to and a reason to jump out of bed and go do what youre supposed to do. Those surveyed in the study, called Work in Retirement: Myths and Motivations, also offered advice to younger workers the most common being be open to trying something new and be willing to earn less to do something you truly enjoy, along with keeping up with technology.

Wednesday, July 9 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSThe naughty French (and why we love them anyway)Theres a lot of talk these days about synchronicity, the way small moments converge to deliver exactly the thing weve been thinking about. You might consider it a load of BS, but personally I believe. How else to explain my recent run-in with a pair of French men on a tiny puddle jumper in the rural South? If you know anything about me, you know Ive been obsessed with France as long as I can remember. When other kids requested Happy Meals, I stomped an angry foot and demanded French cuisine (this in a family thats three-generations Floridian, and not the winters-in-Boca kind). I studied French as soon as it was offered and got to Paris as fast as I could. The way some kids take up soccer or the violin, I took up France. I never looked back. It was only later, in college, that I discovered what true Francophiles know: that half the appeal of la France comes from French men. They are depraved, immoral, condescending and utterly intoxicating, which makes them perfectly positioned to torment the female ego. Because along with that infuriating superiority comes a highly skilled flattery. How else to explain the ubiquitous French compliment, Vous tes charmante, a phrase that translates literally as You are charming but more loosely as Id like to sleep together but Im just now meeting you on the Metro or this street corner and I havent yet figured out the exact right compliment to get you to bed. For French women, whove been exposed to the way of the French man since infancy, this sort of cheap flattery has no effect. American women, however, are not accustomed to compliments from strangers. For us, a line like this can be knee-wobbling. And when such compliments come frequently and from many types of men the fishmonger, the street sweeper, the banker is it any wonder that one would get so wrapped up in the place? Like a junkie, Ive been taking hits for more than a decade. And Im headed back again. Soon. Which brings me to the puddle jumper, the airport waiting room and the two French men sitting beside me. They were youngish, mid-20s, handsome and slight in the way of European men. While they waited for their flight, they spoke openly, loudly and without inhibition, as Americans do abroad, sure that no one understands. But I did. I listened as they critiqued every woman who walked by, young and old. I overheard their snide laughter and offensive snickers. When an older, heavier woman in a bright Hawaiian shirt took a seat in the next row, one of the young men elbowed the other. I call dibs, he said. His friend looked over and they both laughed. I had forgotten how French men can be so cruel. A voice on the loudspeaker announced boarding for our rows, and the three of us queued up together. I stood in line behind the two young men, reimaging my trip to France, suddenly not as certain. But those two young men were very cute, and so self-consciously cool, that even with their naughty behavior I was frankly captivated. As for my upcoming trip? Im in trouble.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 3-9, 2014 So far in the United States, samesex marriage is legal in 19 states and in Washington, D.C. Mr. Carpenter would love to marry his partner of 11 years, but theyre waiting until its legal in Florida. We met in New Jersey, he says. We couldve gotten married there. Who wouldve thought? As for same-sex marriage in Florida, I think its going to happen, he says. Conceived by Brian Shnipper, Standing on Ceremony is a collection of short plays revolving around marriage between gay couples. Theres the mother who sees motherhood as a competition and, thinking it will make her look better, is anxious for her gay son to marry. There are the two men who want to get their self-penned wedding vows just right. And the two women dealing with prewedding jitters as they fly to Iowa to get married. And the man eulogizing his partner of many years. The plays are written by eight playwrights whose names read like a list of Whos Who in Contemporary Playwriting: Mo Gaffney (The Kathy and Mo Show), Jordan Harrison (Maple and Vine), Moises Kaufman (The Laramie Project), Neil LaBute (In the Company of Men, Fat Pig), Wendy MacLeod (The House of Yes), Jose Rivera (Marisol, cloud tectonics), Paul Rudnick (Jeffrey, The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told) and Doug Wright (I Am My Own Wife). Standing on Ceremony was first presented off-Broadway in 2011. When Laboratory Theater founder and artistic director Annette Trossbach asked Brenda Kensler if she would direct the play, Ms. Kensler read the script and immediately agreed. Its just perfect, she says. Perfect writing. Its funny, its sad. Shows that make you cry during rehearsal thats my thing, And its true: While theres plenty of laughter and applause during the rehearsal, there are also tears. Dave Yudowitz has his fellow actors sniffling as he rehearses London Mosquitoes, in which his character gives a eulogy for Paul, his partner of 46 years. He describes their courtship, how they forged a life together. When people asked him, How did it last so long? hed say, You have to have a big enough apartment and know when to leave the room. Things, he says, got easier and lovelier. Written by Mr. Kaufman, its humorous and poignant and moving. Marriage is about history, its about witnessing, his character says. Were always gaining things. Small and large victories. But each triumph has its price. We get AIDS medications, but our fighting spirit ceases to soar. We get to come out of the closet, but we lose the delicious clandestine habits of the past. We get marriage, but we lose the rigor of inventing our own unions. I love it. I think I got the best part, Mr. Yudowitz says of his monologue. Im sure every actor feels that way about their part. Its a good group. Im happy to be part of it. Lori Riti, who joined the cast as a last-minute replacement, has a monologue as a woman from Ohio who believes that gay people should not be allowed to get married. Its too dangerous, the character says. The play hits Ms. Riti in a deeper way, she says after rehearsal, because shes watched friends and family members suffer with the issue. My niece and her wife attended my wedding in March, she says. It was so powerful to have them at our wedding. They were married in New York, and they are just as married as we are. She says her niece knew from the age of 7 that she was gay, but struggled with it so much in high school that she almost committed suicide. Im so glad to see her happy and living the life she was meant to live, Ms. Riti says. Kendra Price, who plays a number of roles in the show, wanted to be in the cast because her best friends are lesbians. Why should they have any less of a right (to marry) than we do? she asked. Theyre no less of a person. Marriage, she believes, is a basic human right. In one of the plays, Ms. Price plays Liz, a woman who insists upon an unconventional wedding. Although the two are married, her partner admits, I dont think Ill feel married until were married in every state. The theme is love. Thats just it. Everyone wants to be loved and find love, says actor PJ McCready, who also portrays various characters in the show. He points out the universality of the plays. You can see any couple having these conversations, he says. A mother pressuring her son to get married, or a husband who loses his husband; its the same as if he lost his wife. He pauses, then says, I hate the term gay marriage. It should just be marriage. Everyone fights for partnership, to find something that is so basic, simple. People want to be loved. Not gay married, just married. Standing on Ceremony is often done as a fundraiser, Ms. Kensler says, and usually presented as a reading. The LAB Theater production will be a full play, with minimal sets and props. There will also be wedding cake, she promises. She sees the play as a celebration. Were not going to change anyones opinion on gay marriage, because those (who are against it) wont come see the play, she says. The audience is going to support and celebrate. What do we want for our kids? To love and experience love. Thats the most wonderful thing, she says. Thats all I wanted for our kids. I didnt think gay, straight, whatever. I just wanted them to love and be loved. MARRIAGEFrom page 1 Actors rehearsing Standing on Ceremony. Above: Dave Yudowitz.

Spend some summer evenings with The Met at a local cinemaThe Metropolitan Opera presents Summer Encores, select performances from its Live in HD series, in more than 400 movie theaters across the country. In Southwest Florida, screenings are at the Hollywood Stadium 20 in Naples, Coconut Point 16 in Estero, Bell Tower 20 in Fort Myers and Town Center Stadium 16 in Port Charlotte. Showing Wednesday, July 9, is Verdis Otello, followed by the Baroque pastiche The Enchanted Island on Wednesday, July 16. In Verdis retelling of Shakespeares towering tragedy Otello, soprano Renee Fleming gives a captivating performance as the innocent Desdemona, a role long considered one of her calling cards. As the title hero, Johan Botha delivers an imposing portrayal of a proud warrior brought down by jealousy, and Falk Struckmann is thrilling as the villainous Iago. According to a review in the New York Times, Conductor Semyon Bychkov led a vibrant reading of the score, building tension expertly in the third-act ensemble and creating a mood of tremendous pathos in the final scene. The July 9 Summer Encore presentation of Otello was originally transmitted live from The Met on Oct. 27, 2012. A contemporary take on the 18th-century genre of the pastiche, The Enchanted Island is a delightful Baroque fantasy that brings together more than 30 of the greatest arias and ensembles by Handel, Vivaldi, Rameau, Purcell and other composers. The new English libretto by Jeremy Sams was inspired by Shakespeares The Tempest and A Midsummer Nights Dream. The four young lovers from A Midsummer Nights Dream find themselves shipwrecked on Prosperos island from The Tempest, leading to a tortuous web of comic and dramatic romantic entanglements. The all-star cast is headed by David Daniels as Prospero, Joyce DiDonato as Sycorax, Danielle de Niese as Ariel, Luca Pisaroni as Caliban and the legendary Plcido Domingo as Neptune. William Christie conducts the world-premiere production by director Phelim McDermott. The July 16 Summer Encore presentation of The Enchanted Island was originally transmitted live from The Met on Jan. 21, 2012. Running time is 3 hours, 15 minutes. Summer Encore screenings begin at 7 p.m. Tickets for $25 ($23 for seniors, $19 for children) are available online at www. metopera.org/hdlive and also at participating theater box offices.

Directed by Dominic Champagne, the production pays tribute to the nomadic soul, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition, and to those who quest with infinite passion along the path that leads to Varekai.

Or, as Mazeppa, the horn-playing Roman gladiator stripper puts it: If you wanna bump, bump it with a trumpet. In The Naples Players production of Gypsy, Mazeppas appearance is a definite highlight. As in other productions Ive seen of this classic musical, she winds up almost stealing the show, though shes only in a few scenes and shares a musical number with other strippers. Lauren Redeker, as Mazeppa, is as bold and brassy as the trumpet she blows as she belts and bumps her way through her act. She shows no fear. Ms. Redeker is wildly entertaining and great comedic relief. This scene, set in a house of burlesque in Wichita, Kan., is a turning point in the life of Louise, who, after meeting Mazeppa and the others, winds up doing her first striptease performance on that very same stage. Louise, of course, is Gypsy Rose Lee, and Gypsy is the story of how she ends up becoming the worlds highest-paid tease. Her gimmick? She acts like a lady, wearing long gowns and mink coats and talking to the men in French. But Gypsy, based loosely on her memoirs, is much more than the story of how a young woman becomes a star of striptease. Its a story of lost dreams, of being born too late and not making the life youve hoped for yourself. Its the story of a mother wholl go to any extreme for her children but who doesnt know how to let go, the story of endlessly sacrificing yourself for others, only to realize at the end that you have nothing for yourself. Its the age-old story of how children inevitably grow up and go their own way. And its also the story of show business during a certain era: the kiddie shows, the variety shows and talent shows, burlesque and the decline of vaudeville. Its a lot to pack into one musical, but Gypsy is strong enough to handle it all. Plus, it has all those killer songs: Some People, Everythings Coming Up Roses, Together Wherever We Go, Small World, Let Me Entertain You and of course, the aforementioned Gotta Get a Gimmick. Jule Styne wrote the music, and you cant mistake Stephen Sondheims delightful word play and clever rhymes. (Arthur Laurents wrote the book.) And though the lyrics of Let Me Entertain You remain the same, their connotation changes completely, depending upon whether a child or flirty young woman sings them. This 1959 Broad way musical was made into a film and later, a TV movie, and also enjoyed numerous Broadway revivals. The great Ethel Merman originated the role of Mama, and people have been comparing Mama Roses to hers ever since. Angela Lansbury, Tyne Daly, Bernadette Peters and Patti LuPone have all played the role. Those are big shoes to step into, and Mary Anne McAvoy McKerrow does her best. Her powerful interpretation of Some People, her first solo, makes you sit up straight and take notice. Ms. McKerrow has a strong voice, but shes no belter. Depending upon your expectations and whether youre a purist, this may or may not bother you. She also comes across as youthful for the role; theres no sense of a hard life long-lived, of being middle-aged or past her prime. When she has a breakdown (Roses Turn), she insists she still has the stuff. The opening night audience was cheering her, thinking it was a moment of triumph, not grasping the angst and bitterness of the moment. Ms. McKerrow plays the role of the iconic stage mother with great drive and determination. Its an incredible feat, as shes on stage for most of this long musical. Her real-life husband, John McKerrow, plays her love interest, Herbie, portraying him as a very likable, good-natured Joe. It only serves to make his showdown with Rose all the more powerful: a mouse who demonstrates that he knows how to roar. The best scene the two share together is the number Together Wherever We Go, with Louise (Elizabeth Marcantonio), a surprise stand out of the evening, with great choreography by Dawn Lebrecht Fornara, who also co-directs. Ms. Fornara and co-director Dallas Dunnagan keep the musical chugging along at a good clip. The orchestra, which is heavy on the horns and directed by Charles Fornara, is superb. And the sound balance is excellent. You can hear every word of every lyric, and no one is overpowered by the music. Gabby Pizzi is wonderfully obnoxious as the young Baby June, squealy and overly cute. Rylee Price plays her long-suffering, taciturn younger sister Louise. (The two alternate their roles with Julia Cornwell and Nikki Attanasio, respectively.) The various kids acts are entertainingly horrific, but again, the audience didnt seem to get it. The show a hodgepodge of disparate things cobbled together is always the same, though the costumes and sets change, which is part of the joke. Even when Dainty June has obviously blossomed into a young woman and is not so dainty anymore, her mother perversely insists on dressing her in clothes fit for a 5-year-old. The older June (Alexandra Igoe) had me laughing, performing as a double baton-twirling Statue of Liberty decked out in red, white and blue. Its so over-the-top, its delightfully ludicrous. Costume designers Dot Auchmoody, Mary Wallace and Mark Vanagas have done an exceptional job with this musical; some of the outfits theyve created are hysterical. Ms. Marcantonio, who dresses as a tomboy for half the show, stands out in her transformation into Gypsy Rose Lee, from her first fumbling attempts to a sophisticated young woman at home in her skin and on the stage. She also manages to make the saccharine Little Lamb, in which she sings to her stuffed animals, palatable. Gypsy is a monster of a musical, and The Naples Players do an admirable job with it. Its a good, solid production, even if light on belting and dramatic depth. Mama Rose bemoans that she was born too soon and started too late. She lives her life vicariously through her two daughters and just wants to be noticed. For 2 hours on the Sugden Community Theatre stage, the spotlight is all hers. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com COURTESY PHOTOS 1.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 3-9, 2014 C11 Located just north of Vanderbilt Beach Road on U.S. 41 PLUS:Bead Toss at 8pm Prizes for 12 Lucky Winners! For the KIDS k y W Americana & Classic Rock from LATEST FILMSObvious ChildIs it worth $10? YesObvious Child is a funny comedy that feels refreshingly honest, but whether its completely honest or not I have no idea. The main character is a stand-up comedienne named Donna. The film opens on her in the midst of a routine on, among other embarrassing things, the condition of female underwear after a long day. No doubt this belongs next to the shrinkage episode of Seinfeld in terms of Things Wed Rather the Opposite Sex Not Know. For Donna (Jenny Slate, Saturday Night Live), life is even messier than her underwear. Her boyfriend Ryan (Paul Briganti) dumps her and says hes sleeping with one of her friends. Her boss (Stephen Singer) tells her the bookstore is closing, so shes out of a day job. Drunken voicemails on Ryans phone dont preserve much dignity. And her onenight stand with Max (Jake Lacy) has lifelong ramifications when she learns shes pregnant. Faced with an abortion scheduled for Valentines Day, Donna is unsure if its the right thing to do. Thankfully, she has good friends and supportive parents. Her father (Richard Kind) tells her living is the best revenge for her fears, an apt message to bestow as his daughter endures a breakup. Her mother (Polly Draper) is judgmental but there for Donna in key moments. And close friends Nellie (Gaby Hoffmann) and Joey (Gabe Liedman) are unwavering in taking care of her. The truth is this: Donna is in her late 20s, irresponsible and trying to find herself. In other words, shes human. Shes also sympathetic, and because she makes us laugh, we like her and want her to be OK. The story is also on point in the way we dont always allow ourselves to be happy, even when desirable opportunities arise. Case in point: Max is wonderful. Unlike most guys in female-driven comedies, hes neither a louse, a slacker, a liar nor a philanderer. He seems to genuinely like Donna, and its so sweet its adorable. But she doesnt jump at the chance to be with him, and its not just because shes pregnant; you also get the sense she doesnt feel like shes good enough for anyone. Although shes not necessarily pretty by materialistic Hollywood standards, Ms. Slate is an appealing screen presence whose comedic delivery is spot on. She struggles a bit during emotional moments, but her humor and easy chemistry with Mr. Lacy make the film a real delight. The box-office tally for Obvious Child will determine her leading lady status moving forward, but if nothing else, this proves shes capable of carrying a movie. The film was written and directed by Gillian Robespierre, who keeps the camera pointed straight ahead and lets Ms. Slate do her thing. Lack of visual flourishes aside, Ms. Robespierres message is to empower women to make decisions for themselves, particularly on tough topics such as abortion. Its a palpable note of social consciousness within the frequent laughter, and its handled in a way thats not meant to be offensive. Besides, by films end its clear that Donna makes the right decision for herself and if you like her as much as you should by that point, youll leave the theater happy. h h w h dan HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> Writer/director Gillian Robespierre made a 2009 short lm called Obvious Child that also starred Jenny Slate as Donna and served as the basis for this lm.

Its a sweet, touching story of three people finding answers in unexpected places. Winner of six Goya Awards (the Spanish Oscars). Not Rated (adult themes and situations). Jersey Boys (John Lloyd Young, Vincent Piazza, Christopher Walken) The story of Frankie Valli (Mr. Young) and The Four Seasons rise and fall. For those unfamiliar with the 2005 Tony Award-winning Broadway show, there are big surprises in store as this is much more than a jukebox musical. The songs are good, but the storys even better. Directed by Clint Eastwood. Rated R. Jump Street (Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Ice Cube) In this sequel to the 2012 hit, Captain Dickson (Ice Cube) sends Schmidt (Mr. Hill) and Jenko (Mr. Tatum) to college to bust a drug ring. It has no shame in being similar to the original, and thats OK because its probably funnier. Rated R.The Signal 1/2(Brenton Thwaites, Olivia Cooke, Laurence Fishburne) Computers hackers (Mr. Thwaites, Beau Knapp) wake up in a hospital after trying to track down their rival. The middle loses its way, but the beginning and end are fascinating enough to earn this a moderate recommendation. Rated PG-13.How to Train Your Dragon 2 1/2(Voices of Jay Baruchel, Craig Ferguson, Gerard Butler) With his father (Mr. Butler) ready to hand over the reins and make him chief, Hiccup (Mr. Baruchel) must once again prove himself when dragon hunters threaten their safety. Well-conceived, funny and exciting, this is a top-quality sequel without a misstep. Rated PG.The Fault in Our Stars 1/2(Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Laura Dern) Teenagers Hazel (Ms. Woodley) and Gus (Mr. Elgort) fall for one another as she battles cancer. Its a tearjerker for sure, but it earns those tears through quality character development and emotion. This is not manipulative melodrama; its genuine heartache. Based on the novel by John Green. Rated PG-13.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC14 WEEK OF JULY 3-9, 2014 For more information, visit facebook.com/stickaforkincancer or contact Sue Olszak at sue.olszak@cancer.org FLORIDA WRITERSSecond chances abound in new spin-off mystery series Tear Down and Die, by Joanna Campbell Slan. Spot On Publishing. 304 pages. Trade paperback, $14.99; Kindle, $4.99. This Jupiter Island author just cant stop. Having built a large audience for her Kiki Lowenstein mystery novels (the 10th in the series is about to appear), she recently started a series in which she brings Charlotte Brontes Jane Eyre back to life. Death of a Schoolgirl, the first title in that series (and previously reviewed in this column), won the 2013 Daphne du Maurier Award for Literary Excellence. Now its time for Cara Mia Delgatto, spun off from the Kiki series, to have her own mystery series. The opener is quite promising. Approaching early middle age, Cara is ready for some life changes. Her parents have both recently died, and her son is entering his freshman year at the University of Miami. An empty-nest adult without her mom and dad around, Cara is depressed. Having sold her home in St. Louis as well as the family restaurant she had worked in for many years, shes ready for a major second act in her life. Maybe Martin County on Floridas Treasure Coast, a place she knew well when growing up, is the place to have it. But it holds some bad memories. Cara isnt ready to see Dick Potter, her cantankerous grandfather who lives in Stuart. But when her car threatens to break down on her way from St. Louis to Parents Weekend at her sons college, she has no choice but to stop at Poppys rundown gas station. Its as if destiny were calling through the cars threatening noises. The meeting with her grandfather is not pleasant, but its at least tolerable. Needing a place and time to sort out her feelings, Cara is attracted to an abandoned building that was once an attractive business The Treasure Chest whose owner specialized in antiques, paintings and other items, many of which are still lying about in disrepair and disarray. When her identity is mistaken by the real estate agent, Cara impulsively signs the contract. Soon after literally stepping into her new venture she finds the agent on the floor, dead. Now we have a mystery, and Cara is an obvious suspect. Along the way, Cara is making more friends than enemies.

Once Cara decides to operate her own business in the building she has purchased, the most valuable former employee, MJ Austin, shows up to resume her position and become another good friend. The store and these two women, as well as Cara, all are afforded second chances. The business itself is focused on second chances: refurbished and repurposed objects and new products fashioned from throwaway materials. But there are problems. Clearly, some people dont want Cara there. The place is broken into and graffiti is sprayed on the windows. Could Caras heartthrob from her teenage years, Cooper Rivers, who had made plans to purchase the Treasure Chest building, be responsible? No, that doesnt seem likely. Cooper seems more than interested in reconnecting when he and Cara discover that their youthful romance had been foiled in more ways than one by Caras mother. Strange, isnt it, that Coopers fiance bears a remarkable resemblance to Cara? Is there another second chance here? While the main business of the plot is the discovery of the motive and the murderer, Tear Down and Die holds interest through its varied and highly individualized characters (including Detective Lou Murray); through the portrait it presents of the Stuart area; and through plenty of humor and the authors sensitivity to how rumors and false assumptions lead to dreadful, potentially life-changing outcomes. For example, when Cara discovers why her grandfather was not at her fathers funeral, she understands that she had no reason to harbor resentment for this seeming betrayal. This and other welldramatized insights into the dynamics of relationships make the first title in the Cara Mia Delgatto Mystery Series more than feel-good reading (though it is that, too). The second chance to meet Cara Mia is forthcoming. Look for Kicked to the Curb, available from major online booksellers. Keep tabs on Cara and her creator at www.joanna-campbell-slan.com.

COME EARLY FOR BEST SELECTION! Annual Summer Sizzler KOVEL : ANTIQUESPatriotic themes popular with collectors BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELFlags, eagles, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, the Statue of Liberty, Uncle Sam and other patriotic symbols are very popular with collectors. The image gives a simple message of patriotism to Americans. You can find them in advertisements, as textile designs, on dinnerware or made into figurines for the fireplace mantel. Folk artists often made large wooden carvings to be displayed publicly. But the price depends on the fame and skill of the artist, the age and size of the piece, and how it was used before it was sold to a collector. A large carved hanging wall eagle by John Bellamy (1836-1914) or an eagle made to display on a table made by Wilhelm Schimmel (1817-1890) sells for thousands of dollars. An ordinary eagle by an unknown carver can be a bargain. This 35-inch-high painted wooden eagle sold for $47, slightly less than estimated, at a Copake auction in upstate New York. Q: My aunt left me a lamp. The base is a figurine of an 18th-century woman sitting at a piano gazing affectionately at a man with a lute. It sits on an oval brass base. Two curved arms extend from the back and they are decorated with a metal vine and tiny porcelain flowers. In the 1940s, my aunt was window shopping in Chicago with a friend when she spotted and admired this lamp. Later, the bell boy in her hotel delivered it to her room. It was a gift! Im interested in learning its maker and history. Value, too. A: Your lamp is a typical example of porcelain made in the town of Dresden, Germany. Dresden porcelain is known for its naturalistic flowers and gilt trim, reticulation (cutout areas) and lace decorations. Figurines of 18th-century ladies and gentlemen, romantic couples, animal groups, cherubs and mythological subjects were popular. The most famous Dresden figurines are called crinoline groups, which show court-life scenes such as people dancing and playing instruments. More than 200 porcelain-decorating studios operated in Dresden in the late 1800s and early 1900s. They decorated white porcelain made in Germany, Austria and France. Most porcelain blanks were not marked with the manufacturers mark. Your lamp probably was made in the 1930s and would sell for about $100. Replace the cord. Old cords are often cracked and are fire hazards. Q: I have a brown clay-type teapot that was my grandmothers. Its embossed with a girl at the well. I was told it was Rebekah at the Well. Can you tell me something about it? How old is it? Does it have any value? A: The Rebekah at the Well teapot mrtequilarestaurant.com HAPPY HOUR 3-6 pm Margaritas & Draft Beer BUY ONE GET ONE FREE!

The design was copied from a pot made by an English maker, Samuel Alcock & Company, in the 1840s. The mottled brown glaze is known as Rockingham. Bennett made Rebekah at the Well teapots until the factory closed in 1936. The relief design was so popular it was copied by other makers in the United States and England. It can be found on teapots, sugar bowls, pitchers and other items. Its value: $50 and up. Q: I found a silk scarf in my grandmothers belongings. The scarf has a small hand-sewn hem around the edges. In the center there is a circle with a statue of a horse and rider standing on a pediment that reads 688 and surrounded by the words The Glorious & Immortal Memory of 1688 & 1690. Other symbols, including the harp of Ireland, are in the four corners of the scarf and the words Aughrim, Derry, Enniskillen and Boyne are along the sides. My grandmothers parents were from Ireland. What does this represent? A: Your scarf commemorates battles in the Glorious Revolution, when the Catholic king of England, James, was overthrown and replaced by the Protestant King William. The figure on the horse is William, who invaded England at the invitation of parliament in 1688. He and his wife, Mary, were crowned as monarchs of England in 1689. Then William invaded Scotland and Ireland, and became king of those countries, too. The places listed along the sides of your scarf were famous battles in Ireland. These battles still are commemorated by Orangemen in the Protestant parts of Ireland. Q: What marking should be on the bottom to identify something as Fenton glass? I have seen a few different markings on items on eBay. A: Fenton was founded in 1905 in Martins Ferry, Ohio. The company is known for its carnival glass made between 1907 and 1920. Most Fenton glass is marked Fenton, but some other marks also were used. Pieces marked with an F in an oval were made from molds bought from other glass companies. Pieces marked with the three letters O, V and G are part of Fentons Olde Virginia Glass line, made from 1960 to 1979. Fenton stopped making art glass in 2011. Copies of Fenton items currently are being made by an unrelated company, Fentons Collectibles, using original Fenton molds. The copies are marked with both the Fenton mark and Fentons Collectibles mark.

Can you help? Donald R., Bethesda, Md.A: I certainly can help. The American Hero Channels new original series, Gunslingers, will debut at 10 p.m. Sunday, July 20. The series focuses on the few brave men who protected the innocent from an endless stream of gunwielding outlaws throughout the 19th century. The thrilling six-part historical docudrama immerses viewers in the true stories behind infamous icons and legendary conflicts of the Wild West. Q: You mentioned a while back that A Young Doctors Notebook and Other Stories would be back for another season, but Ive heard nothing more about it. Do you know when or if it will return? Jennifer D., via emailA: Season two of this darkly humorous series, which stars Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe as televisions most unlikely alter egos, premieres at 10 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 19, on Ovation. It will continue on consecutive Tuesdays nights thereafter: Aug. 26, Sept. 2 and Sept. 9. The series is based on tales inspired by renowned Russian writer and playwright Mikhail Bulgakov, who also just happens to be my favorite Russian Lit author. (When you get the chance, you must read his seminal novel, The Master and Margarita. Its in my top-three books of all time, along with A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving and Sophies Choice by William Styron.) Q: I cant find I Wanna Marry Harry on Fox anymore. Do you know why the series about the pretend prince has not been airing? Dave L., via emailA: The Fox reality series, which flew 12 American women to a stately home outside of London for a dating-competition show, was pulled from Fox after the fourth episode for dismal ratings. If you want to see how the show turned out, the whole series is available on Hulu and at Fox.com. Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Independence Day t) ) Friday July 4, 2014BBQNoon-6 p.m.$20 adults, $12 kidsDrink Specials11:30 a.m. 9 p.m. VINOAffordable Rhne reds make your outdoor cookout specialIf youre looking for good red wine that pairs well with steaks, hamburgers and grilled or barbecued dishes of all kinds, costs $15 a bottle or less and still makes meal times special, consider wines from the Ctes du Rhne district in France. Well balanced, medium bodied and economical, these wines have great fruit flavors and bouquets that make them perfectly suited to enjoying during the long, hot summer. Situated in the southeastern corner of France, the vineyards straddle the Rhne River in an area that has been producing wines since before Roman times. The Rhne district is split geographically. The north has great wines such as Cte Rtie and Hermitage, while Chteauneuf-du-Pape is the star in the south. Top wines from these districts can go for more than $100 a bottle, while mid-range prices run $40 to $60. Other Rhne appellations are becoming better known as well, including Gigondas, but the best values come from the sprawling Ctes du Rhne appellation, comprising more than 200,000 acres. You have to search to find wines priced in the $20 range from this district. The Ctes du Rhne is the largest appellation in the Rhne district, accounting for two-thirds of the wine production. This southern district makes softer and fruitier wines than their sturdy cousins up north, and like all Rhne selections, the wines are very approachable. They are so approachable, in fact, that a bottle of Rhne wine is consumed somewhere in the world every 13 seconds, according to the website www.rhone-wines.com. Most of the production from the Ctes du Rhne is red, and there are roughly 20 types of grapes used in the district. The three most important are grenache, syrah and mourvedre. Each winery develops wines with its own blend of these grapes. This makes the wines distinct from one another, but they have many similarities. Cherry, berry and plum are mixed with flavors that reflect the Provencal countryside, with nuances of juniper, thyme, rosemary and lavender, as well as characteristic mineral or earthy notes from their terroir. Pairing with food is easy and simple. Because the wines are lower in tannins and alcohol (usually around 12 percent), they go well with a wide variety of dishes. Along with steaks and hamburgers, consider serving them with roasted chicken and roasted root vegetables, pizza or grilled vegetables. One step up the wine pyramid, and very similar, is the appellation Ctes du Rhne Villages. Grenache must make up at least 50 percent of the blend for these wines, together with at least 20 percent syrah and/or mourvdre, along with up to 20 percent of other authorized varieties. Wines labeled Ctes du Rhne Villages will typically be priced about 25 percent higher than Ctes du Rhne.Wine Picks of the Week: Perrin et Fils Ctes du Rhne Reserve 2011 ($11): The vineyards for this wine border on their famed estate Chteau de Beaucastel Chteauneufdu-Pape, ranked No. 8 overall in the 2013 Wine Spectator Top 100. Deep purple in color with a light bouquet of dark fruits mixed with smoke and earth notes, it shows impressive flavors on the palate with black plum and black cherry and a touch of spice. The wine was a little tight at first but opened up nicely after some air time. This wine is about 50 percent grenache mixed with mourvedre and syrah, and is aged in a combination of stainless steel and oak. Saint Cosme Ctes du Rhne 2012 ($14): The Chateau de Saint Cosme estate produced wine back in Roman times, and there are still 25 ancient vats carved into the limestone rock that was used back then for making wine. The Barruol family has made wine here for 14 generations. Today the estate has less than 40 acres, mostly with 60-yearold vines. This wine is nearly all syrah from higher elevation vineyards. It is a dark inky purple in color with medium body and bouquet. The palate is very smooth with berry fruit flavors of currants mixed with licorice, pepper and a hint of tobacco. Elegant in style with a long, lingering finish. Delas Freres Ctes du Rhne Saint Esprit 2011 ($15): This selection comes from a small valley in the northern part of the Ardeche, near SaintJulien and Saint-Alban. The vineyards are planted in granite slopes facing south, and are mostly syrah with about 10 percent grenache. The wine is a dark plum color with sweet red fruits and spices on the nose. Round and smooth in the mouth, it has dark cherry cobbler and blueberry flavors, herbs with pepper and spice, with a touch of earth on the palate. The tannins and fruit are well balanced on the lingering finish.

Its a fine-dining restaurant. Its a social club. La Bazenne, one of the new kids on Fifth Avenue South, is all that and more. This cozy little establishment brings a charming French style to all it does. That likely has something to do with the fact that Romauld Giacometti, who owns and operates the restaurant with his wife, Amy, grew up watching his parents, Martine and Bernard Giacometti, run the original La Bazenne, which just marked its 40th year of business in Ile de Re, France. The family chose to bring that winning formula to Southwest Florida, where it seems to be thriving, too. In the morning (weekends only during the summer), the kitchen serves eggs, croissants, crepes and coffee. At lunch, there are crepes, salads and dishes such as mussels in saffron emulsion with French fries, and burgers, steaks and fish of the moment. All afternoon, you can stop in for a crepe. Whether its something savory (such as blue cheese, spinach, wild berries and nuts, or a Cuban with slow-roasted pork, ham, cheese and cornichons) or something sweet (Nutella and whipped cream, perhaps?), the friendly and efficient staff works hard to satisfy your cravings. And then there is dinner, where Chef Andy Hydes talents are on full display. It begins with the delivery of fresh French bread, which is baked on premises, and butter, w hich is whipped there as well. And theres a lovely little amuse served on a spoon. On this night it consists of Granny Smith apple pearls (a bit of gastronomic alchemy), dried cranberries, Parma ham and a mustard leaf. The menu isnt vast, but whats offered is well chosen and painstakingly crafted from the finest ingredients. I cannot recall ever having tasted octopus as tender as that in the appetizer ($18) served here. You expect octopus to be a bit chewy, but this was exceedingly tender, the result of being prepared sous vide (sealed in a bag with seasoning and cooked at a low temperature for a long time). It was finished off in the oven, then plated with roasted cherry tomatoes, charred broccoli rabe, lemon verbena pesto and a touch of piment despellete, a red chili pepper from France. I would recommend this both to those who love octopus and those who dont, as the odds are the latter will change their mind after trying this remarkable dish. Another fine starter was le petite chevre ($11), a round of creamy French goat cheese on bread accompanied by cherry tomatoes, dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds and mixed greens dressed in Amys Dijon vinaigrette. This, too, was a meticulously rendered dish that was both beautiful and delicious. Entrees are just as creative as the appetizers. Les St. Jacques ($29) featured plump diver scallops served with English peas, asparagus and pommes fondants (potatoes shaped much like the scallops, cooked in butter and stock until they are soft within and lightly brown on the outside). Duck lovers will find Chef Hydes lavender duck ($32) a revelation. Both the breast and thigh were tender, the skin crisp and drizzled with a light Florida orange glaze and duck jus served with membrane-free orange sections, tender-crisp kohlrabi and pommes almond (little potato croquettes with crunchy exteriors). We finished the meal with two traditional French desserts: a cheese plate with wondrous brie, blue cheese and chevre, local honey, bread and fresh berries ($10) and the aphrodisiaque crepe ($10), for which our server ignited the sweet sauce before pouring it over the top then finished it with a dollop of whipped cream. No one goes thirsty at La Bazenne. Choose from the craft beer list or a moderately sized but well-chosen wine list of primarily French labels but with a handful of other options as well. If you dont want a bottle, there are more than 20 wines by the glass. When we had trouble deciding between two roses, our server offered us a taste of both. We wound up ordering a bottle of crisp 2012 Les Domaniers Cote de Provence Rose, which was the drier of the two and complemented the meal nicely. Service was terrific throughout the meal. Our server was intimately familiar with the menu, knew his wines and timed courses perfectly. Chef Hyde and Mr. Giacometti also stopped by each table to introduce themselves and make sure all was well. There are a number of dining areas: the outdoor tables along Fifth Avenue South, which are great for people watching; a room with big garage-style doors that can be opened, weather permitting (it didnt permit on this muggy night); and a cozier interior room with a bar at which you can watch the kitchen staff work and tables on either side that are quieter and more secluded than those in the main room. I liked the main room, which was bright and airy with big chalkboards on each end detailing the days specials and wines, a floor of alternating black and white tiles, paper lanterns hanging from the rails on the ceiling and white canvas deck chairs. La Bazenne is a place where you want to linger and relax, which is where the club component comes in. For a small annual fee, members get special perks and invitations to private parties such as the one planned for Bastille Day. Member or not, count on feeling pampered and special when you dine at La Bazenne. d I l o a karen FELDMANcuisine@floridaweekly.com CUISINE KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLYOctopus is tender and delicious, served with broccoli rabe and roasted cherry tomatoes.KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLYCrisp-skinned lavender duck has a light orange glaze, paired with kohlrabi, oranges and pommes almond.
